"Low and Behold" Released on Digital

A decade after the Federal Flood, the City of New Orleans is awash in Katrina retrospectives. Disaster was followed by a surge of art in the Crescent City and the film “Low and Behold” was at the vanguard. Today, the movie was finally released digitally.

Crescent City Classic?

The Runner: Nic Cage's Louisiana Political Drama Reviewed

Nicholas Cage loves New Orleans. The actor has taken a few trips to OPP, built himself an illuminati-esque mausoleum in St. Louis No. 1, and shot several features in the City. The Runner is the latest addition to Cage’s NOLA love affair. Written and directed by Austin Stark, the film depicts the trial and tribulations of a disgraced Louisiana pol.

Waving the Geek Flags: Jurassic World's JazzLand Makeover

Jurassic World managed to secure a spot in box office history after just 24 hours. The reboot of Steven Spielberg’s mid Nineties blockbusters raked in 82.8 million dollars on opening day, placing it this all time. However, locals will be more interested in the locale than the numbers. The theme park setting for the film is actually a made-over Six Flags New Orleans.

Frame Game

Sync Up Film Turns the Focus on Industry

New Orleans is filled with some of the world’s best creative talent. Yet, the City often lags behind when it comes to actual industry and infrastructure to support the arts. Eight years ago, the Jazz and Heritage Foundation took some steps to remedy that situation by starting Sync Up and then later teaming up with NOVAC. The cinema portion is a three day conference and mini-fest that aims to focus on the production behind film (and provide lots of entertainment in the process).

Timecode:NOLA Focuses on Indie Film at Fest

All fests do not involve music and rows of vendors. Timecode:NOLA’s latest project tends to skew more towards soundtracks and rows of sprockets. On Thursday (4.16), the Third Annual Independent Film Fest hits local screens.

Today in NOLA: 3.09.15

Throw back some Jameson today. If you’re in a more mellow mood, check out a screening of the The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. For younger tastes, Peter Deranges is in town signing books. On this date in 1804, the Three Flags Ceremony marked the transfer of Upper Louisiana to France, before France transferred it to the United States. Now, more to do this Monday.

Room 220: Katrina & the Rapture

By Room 220

Alright, alright. This post really isn’t about a literary event—it’s about a film screening, the New Orleans premiere of Good People Go To Hell, Saved People Go To Heaven at 7p.m. on Sunday, March 1 at Indywood (628 Elysian Fields). But since the Room 220 editors had a hand in organizing the event, it will also include some bookish elements: namely, the inclusion of a couple celebrated authors as part of a panel discussion following the film.

Short-List: Louisiana at the Oscars

Tonight, the Academy Awards air on WGNO at 6:00p.m. Louisiana must have expended her supply of glitz and glamour during Carnival. Only one film with local tie-ins made the short-list.

Hit and Run Caught on Camera

Cameras are changing crime. On Friday (1.24), surveillance caught a hit and run collision on tape. Now, the New Orleans Police Department are searching for the suspect vehicle.

Today in NOLA: 1.20.15

Today established local trumpeter Kermit Ruffins does his weekly thing at Bullet's. For those who want a night off from music, Siberia is hosting trivia night and Blue Ruin is playing at Indywood. On this day in 1973, Jerry Lee Lewis made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry. Lewis had promised to abstain from obscenities during the show, but he broke his promise.
